Two things to note about 2017 so far: 1. Fidget spinners can’t stop, won’t stop, and probably will never stop until 2018 introduces something better (or should we say worse). 2. Selena Gomez is single-handedly revolutionizing this whole ‘70s style throwback trend—and we’re all for it.

Take for example the “Bad Liar” cover art, wherein we see a dreamy SelGomez in a floral mini dress we all probably have hidden away somewhere in a box labeled “Middle School Clothes.” Sure—with its short silhouette, smocked bodice, and frilly sleeves—the style is a little juvenile. A little Lolita. But hey, it’s also a lot chic.

Still not convinced? Might we direct you to Exhibit B: the “Fetish” music video, wherein we see a fresh-faced Selena Gomez doing frankly weird stuff in a yellow dress with tiny bows and scalloped sleeves.

Not too sure what exactly makes the look a LEWK here, but we have two hypotheses: 1. Selena Gomez is the type of human who could pull off even a garbage bag, or 2. Baby doll dresses just look real chic when styled with fashion girl-approved sneakers and of-the-moment hoop earrings. WHO KNOWS? But what we do know is this summer, we can’t get enough of the baby doll dress. Thanks, SG.
